Sword Art Online Progressive 1 (light novel) by Reki Kawahara

"There's no way to beat this game. The only difference is when and where you die..."

One month has passed since Akihiko Kayaba's deadly game began, and the body count continues to rise. Two thousand players are already dead.

Kirito and Asuna are two very different people, but they both desire to fight alone. Nonetheless, they find themselves drawn together to face challenges from both within and without. Given that the entire virtual world they now live in has been created as a deathtrap, the surviving players of Sword Art Online are starting to get desperate, and desperation makes them dangerous to loners like Kirito and Asuna. As it becomes clear that solitude equals suicide, will the two be able to overcome their differences to find the strength to believe in each other, and in so doing survive?

Sword Art Online: Progressive is a new version of the Sword Art Online tale that starts at the beginning of Kirito and Asuna's epic adventure—on the very first level of the deadly world of Aincrad!

If you are a fan of the series "Sword Art Online" then I strongly recommend the fans to read the light novel series because it goes more depth in the story plot itself, the concept of the game world, Kirito and Asuna's thought process, and it also explains more on the hatred for the beaters from Kirito's perspective. Sword Art Online Progressive is an alternative story line of the first arc in Aincrad. I simply fell in love with it and enjoyed it. I can't wait to read more on the Progressive series. As I read through the chapters I could visually see Kirito and Asuna from the anime coming to life, in action, dancing off the pages as I read the light novel.

FYI this is the Light Novel (Mainly text with some images) This is how Sword Art Online should have been. This series is essentially a reboot of the original arc with the plan to go through all 100 floors. Each book will cover 2-3 floors each with the only major difference I can find being that Kirito meets Asuna way earlier. It's been a great read and does a good job of fleshing out previously minor characters like Argo the Rat. As always Yen press did a good job translating this. Didn't find any engrish.
